Still Kicking

My runs are getting better and better. My mother recently told me my stride was beautiful, which meant alot because I used to be very self-conscious about my form. I feel less and less sensitivity in my soles every time I run. I used to run on the sidewalk and tar lines whenever possible to relieve my feet, but now I prefer the rough road and hardly touch the sidewalk. I feel like my form is better on the rough road and my feet slip a little on the sidewalk, creating more friction.

I haven't been increasing my distance by any more than 10% a week in order to avoid any injuries. However, the other day, I had alot on my mind and I was really enjoying my run, so I kept going and increased by 50% instead. The total distance was 4.5 miles. Before that, my longest was only 3.

Things are going well.
